It has been 168 Days since Booster Gold last appeared in a DCnU comic book.

For the past 5 weeks (since November 5th!), no one has left a comment on a post here at Boosterrific.com. I had decided not to panic. There hasn't been a Booster Gold comic in months, so why should anyone have anything to say around here? Turns out it wasn't you, it was me.
Longtime Booster booster Eyz sent me an email early this morning with a particular complaint:
For a while (a month? perhaps a bit longer..) I haven't been able to comment on Boosterrific. Every time I write a comment and I press the submit button, instead of being prompted to a confirmation code ("write below the characters you see above..") a second submit button pops up. And if I press it, it reloads the page losing my comment in the process...
I looked into it, and he was absolutely right. Google had migrated their reCAPTHCA processing scripts, and I was still using the old Carnegie Mellon University links (outdated since 2010). This error was eating comments. Shame on me.
I've fixed the error and you should all be able to comment again (though you may need to force a browser refresh to clear the old scripts). It was never my intention to deactivate commenting, and I apologize if I discouraged anyone from dropping a line. In the future, should you ever find anything on this site you consider to be a bug, please let me know on the Forum or via email (webmaster at Boosterrific.com). If you think it would help for me to build a contact form page, I could do that too.

As previously reported, Booster Gold is among the hundreds of DC characters in Scribblenauts Unmasked. But that's not all. It turns out that our hero actually plays a role in one of the game's storyline missions, "Flash vs Professor Zoom"
Click the picture above if you want to see a full walkthrough video of the mission (and all of Booster's dialogue, beginning about 17:23) by ixCeLiFy on YouTube. If you'd rather play the game yourself, it's available on the Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, and Steam.

A central mystery in the middle act of 52 was the true identity of Supernova. Was it Superman? Superboy? Someone new?
Of course, Booster Gold fans were never at a loss, and neither was Ralph Dibny, better known as the world-famous Elongated Man!
Dibny was the first (and only!) to deduce Supernova's identity in 52 Week 31. Out-thinking a man with access to all of time and space was one of the last achievements in Dibny's celebrated career and also one of his finest.

One day, we will tell our grandchildren that we used to read comic books printed on paper about a character named Booster Gold. They'll probably look at us like we're making things up.
Last week's poll question: What do Booster Gold fans have to give thanks for in 2013? (44 votes)
1.) Booster Gold turns 30 in 2015.
2.) There's a rumor going around that DC wants to start producing more low budget movies about B-list heroes.
This week's poll question: Do you think DC will make a Booster Gold movie before 2015?
